Anna Griffin's Poppy Spring Card with Sellbinders Persian Accent

Hi everyone,

I am super excited today because I have tons of new toys to play with!!!

I discovered ANNA GRIFFIN'S new and beautiful-beautiful embossing folders! Luckily, one was still left of POPPY so I grabbed it {ever feel like you're depriving the other shoppers when you grab the last one, lol, and tuck it quickly into your cart???} that was my crafting focus yesterday and today.

Because its such a beautiful floral design, I immediately wanted to use my chalks to colour it, and to do so I used my AQUA took some time but it was relaxing and nice.  Here is how it looked when I was done colouring....soft shades...

I am trying to make some cards ahead of time, and soon there will be birthdays, easter....and spring in general, so I decided to use this 5 x 7 inch paper as a card front - and to show off as much of it as I could, I made a wide card!
 With white as my card base, I played around with another product which came in the mail today a Spellbinder's die set PERSIAN ACCENTS - because I want this card to be fussy! Fussy and fun! I think I might of gone crazy applying the gem scrolls - those are f-u-s-s-y alright, yikes, but I did it.  And some ribbon and a couple of wee butterflies - gee, when do I stop!!! :) 

Here's my result...

You might want to check out ANNA GRIFFIN'S BLOG - there are some give-a-ways coming March 25th, but you also need to be spot on with the social media sites, which I am not so wonderful at - yet - so I can enter but will need lots of luck, lol... still ...AND ...YOU go for it too! 

And hopefully, you'll try a " fussy card " too!

Cheers as always,
Taylor B
